The project is the brainchild of me, Geoff McCabe, but some of the lots are now owned by others, who are beginning to add their energy and creativity to the project. I’m also the CEO of Anamaya Yoga Resort in Montezuma, and two smaller eco-village projects in the area, Pura Vida Sunsets, and Solar Vistas and am a big proponent of tropical green building. I’ve written several articles on the subject such as this one: Costa Rica Green Building.
The current vision of the project is to create an organic community of eco-minded artists, especially those involved in the performance arts and yoga. Currently, all the lots that have been sold are to people who are musicians, artists, etc.
Yoga and Permaculture Program
We have an ongoing “PYP” program: Permaculture and Yoga Program. Guests visit us from around the world, anywhere from 5-15 at a time, to take a series of eight permaculture courses, and are awarded an Introduction to Permaculture Certificate.
This program, which is part yoga retreat and permaculture workshops, keeps our guests very busy throughout their week-long stay. They take additional classes in aerial silk, archery, raw chocolate making, and have a couple of beach and town/nightlife excursions too.
